This is a guide on how to build a dashcam using the Raspberry Pi computer.
For my current built-in setup I am using a Raspberry Pi 2B, a Pi camera (with a wide angle lens) and a basic USB webcam. For the OS and rear video I use a 32Gb SD card and 64Gb USB storage for the Pi camera video and the dashcam log data (here’s a basic list of parts and prices).
Many settings are user definable, at the moment I have 1296×[email protected] for the Pi camera and 800×[email protected] for the USB camera. I can press a button to shutdown the dashcam when finished or simply leave it running from the car battery. Below are details on how it was made.
